This article attempts to prove that an adequate cognition oriented approach to the processing of symbolic information abstracted from verbal expressions must consider a running text instead of scattered sentences. It is argued that the dominant cognition models do not give due consideration to the fact that a valid abstraction of in-formation structures has to be based on an explicit encoding of intentionality and valuation. Following a critical discussion of the foundations of the existing models, it is stated that a model is required that can cope with empirical context and novelty instead of truth-values in semantic-logical contexts. The proposed theory has been validated on empirical text materials. It is shown that its underlying key relations can be extracted by means of discriminant functions and given a meaningful interpretation.
